Cunneyworth has been coaching them like it's an AHL team, which might be good at getting them to hit hard and get the best guys to crash the net, but it's not going to do anything. Kostitsyn is what he is, he's a useful and flawed player.

To be fair Martin did a similar thing as he rewarded defense above all else.
What goal are we talking about here?

The question is not to wonder if Gomez will play with the Habs or not next year, the real question is; will he score more than 10 goals with the Bulldogs?
You can't win with players like Kostitsyn. Gomez,Kaberle and Campoli... What chance does any coach have???

Blame Gainey and Gauthier and whatever Hab scout that said trade for Kaberle!!!

Really? He keeps defending him since the start of the show. And who cares which media blast AK, his own coach is blasting him.

I know that AKost is loved around here, but man, i'm tired of seeing a guy of his talent taking night off almost every game. I don't know how some people here can still "defend" him.

I think it's time to move on and trade him.

Are you watching the same show as I? He keeps defending him. Always have been. The other guys say he was benched because his coach was not satisfied with him and Bergie still manage to find a way to save his butt. AK is one of Bergie's favorite boys.

I can understand that. Kabs was making those kind of plays on a nightly basis when he was a Cane. So that's why we were so happy to get rid of him.

Glad you and a couple other of Habs posters were more friendly than Habsolument90 and didn't resort to insults on another team's fan base.

I still remember back during the 2006 run I had some good conversations with Habs fans on their main website. Figured I'd stop by here and see if that hospitality continued. For the most part it has. Wish everyone in Raleigh cared as much about hockey as I do and everyone on here does but I don't love the Canes any less. Habs have been my second favorite team since 2006 and the hospitality those fans showed me. Should go back to the main boards and see what those guys are up to.

Kind of hard to not take the night off when your boss is sending you home.

This.

If you need a goal, you need to put players who can "shoot puck in net" on the ice.

We had superstars Gomez and Darche to do that.

Dude, what night did he take off? He played for 4 freaking minutes!!!!
The coach gave him the night off. So he had a couple of bad shifts playing with Scott the magnificent Gomez? Take Darche off for a couple shifts, take Palushaj off, play AK there, see how much better he looks. But no, 4 min is all he'll get with Gomez.

It's not about defending AK. It's about playing crappier players more than him. I don't care how bad or lazy anybody thinks he is, the bottom line is he is better than Scott Gomez, Mathieu Darche and Aaron Palushaj. There is no freaking reason for him to be used less than these guys, no matter how crappy he's playing.

What the **** is up with putting Gomez on the ****ing powerplay with 5 minutes left to the game? What's he doing out there anyways?

What's up with Kostitsyn? Sucks to admit it, but even though he played only 4 minutes, those 4 minutes were terrible. And why does he play with Gomez? Why does anyone play with Gomez?

And last, but not least, why is Darche playing 20 minutes per game and on the 4 on 4 with less than two minutes left? I cried, partly from laughter and partly from sadness.

If we keep winning though I don't think we will be able to get him. I think the max he falls is 6.

Maybe not but Bergie always find reasons to defend AK. He could screw up countless times and be soft and still Bergie save his butt on the air. He must have been a coach playing favorites all the time.
